BRSN Announces Athlete of the Week: Cornell Men’s Hockey Goaltender Mitch Gillam
The BRSN team selects one Cornell Athlete each week whose performance stood out among their peers both within the Cornell athletic community and the Ivy League.
RELEASE: ITHACA, NY — Junior netminder Mitch Gillam has been named the BRSN Athlete of the Week. Following a rough stretch for the Big Red, where the squad dropped five of its last six games, the men’s hockey team walked away from Friday and Saturday with three total points in the ECAC standings, which was thanks in large part to an outstanding 71-save weekend from Gillam. He posted 39 in a crucial 2-2 tie with No. 1 Quinnipiac, and stopped 32 shots the following day in a 1-0 route of Princeton. Saturday’s bout marked Gillam’s fifth shutout of the season.
